For the third consecutive year, Texas and Florida ranked first and second in the annual U-Haul annual Growth States data analysis of U.S. migration trends

For the third consecutive year, Texas and Florida ranked first and second in the annual U-Haul annual Growth States data analysis of U.S. migration trends.
 
U-Haul calculates its Growth States ranking based on one-way traffic by U-Haul trucks entering or leaving a state; more than 2 million U-Haul trucks are engaged in one-way traffic each year. During 2018, Texas saw its arrivals up by 5 percent from 2017, with communities in and around the Houston, Dallas-Fort Worth and Austin-Round Rock metropolitan areas experiencing the greatest arrival activity.
 
"North Texas is truly bursting at the seams," said Kevin Flanagan, U-Haul Co. of Northwest Dallas President. "McKinney, Frisco and the entire Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex has been growing substantially in recent years. Texas is gaining more residents than any other state. I think it is the most desirable state in which to live. Obviously, many U-Haul truck-sharing customers agree with me."
 
In addition to Texas and Florida, the top five included South Carolina in third, Utah in fourth and Idaho in fifth. At the other end of the spectrum, Illinois ranked 50th on the list for the third time in four years, with Michigan ranked in 49th and California at 48th.
